Magic Loop is a technique for working in the round that avoids the use of double pointed needles. Using longer-than-usual circular needles, you can knit projects even with very small circumferences, like wee little socks, crowns of hats, cuffs of sleeves… the list goes on!

Note: You can use a form of Magic Loop for both crochet and knitting. Here we demonstrate the technique for knitting!

And once you’ve mastered one piece on Magic Loop, why not try two? To knit sleeves and socks in double-time, check out our Magic Loop: Two At A Time Tutorial next!
